attention philadelphia wizard people!

  Hey Guys, last year i posted about the Harry Potter fan art show in philadelphia. My friends and I are opening a game store in west philly and i thought this would be a good community to spread the word to. We're will be carrying all sorts of games, with a focus on the wizardly sort (Magic: The Gathering, Dungeons & Dragons, etc. ) as well as hosting event nights (we might even have another wizard people screening before too long.

so yeah if you're in the area, or if we met at that padlock show last summer, please come check out the store!

ta-dah forever!


An Inquiry

  So I was watching the trailer to "We Are Wizards", a documentary about the wizard rock scene and the world of Harry Potter fandom (you can watch the trailer yourself at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=24fDD-P7iwU). It begins and ends with Brad Neely. The beginning I recognized as being from the beginning of the "cribbage" match, but the bit at the end was not in the version of WPDR that I watched (the original, I believe; the one where he starts to laugh during the sorting hat scene). It goes something to the effect of: "Harry Potter said right into Ron's soul, 'You know what we are, baby. We are wizards. We are finally what we were always going to become. We are wizards, and the world better get ready, for I have just begun.'"

My question is: Is that in the newer version of WPDR? If it is, it's not in the transcript (found at http://www.erikkennedy.com/wizardpeopledearreaders.html) If it's not, where is it from? Some other Neely Potter project? Made special for the doc? Anybody know?

My best friend got me the greatest Christmas present ever. She went to Build-A-Bear and made a Danny Elfman bear for me. (If you don't know who he is, I feel sorry for you.)

I wanted to give her an equally awesome present, so I'm going to make her a Ronnie the F'ing Bear bear. I just don't know what I want to record on the little voice box. Right now, I'm thinking of either, "Ron...Ron loves Twizzlers," or "At least I'm not a hideous fucker." Which do you guys think is better, or do you have any other ideas?

  Does anyone know where I can find the original recording of Wizard People?  I liked some parts of it better than the newer one (though it has advantages as well), and I would just like to keep both of them around.

Hullo fellow Wizard People enthusiasts.

As usual, I am the last one to the party.  I have been watching and sharing Wizard People with anyone willing to listen for a couple years now, but only today did I discover this community.

In this Wikipedia article, it mentions an anonymous Denton resident's Wizard People DVD.  That Denton resident just happens to be the fella I've been sleeping next to for a few years.

It is pretty awesome.  And we love to spread the good word.  We actually gave a copy to those nice Harry and the Potters boys when they visited Denton.  Such nice boys.

This is us.  We're the ones who aren't Harry.

Anyways, just to make the holidays gay, we'd be happy to send on some copies of the masterpiece at cost.  Comment here if you're interested or have questions.

dvd, anyone?

Hi guys!
I was wondering if anyone who watches this community has a synced DVD of WPDR. I'm trying to put together a screening at my college campus (gotta spread the love!) and things would be so much easier if everything was already put together.
I've scoured the internet for synced versions, and all I've found are dead torrents and files that I can't piece together for lack of technical know-how.

I'm willing to pay for a DVD, if anyone wants to burn one (I'd pay for the shipping, too). A file I can just play from my computer would be equally awesome.

Thanks for your help!

PS. I'm looking for the audio that is currently being hosted at illegal art, if that's at all possible. It's my favorite version. If no one has that, no biggie.

EDIT 9/17/07: I got a DVD! If anyone needs a copy, I'm one more supplier.

Hello there, I have tried going to that Illegal Art site to download the mp3 of Wizard People, but my computer says the site is down! Is there any way some kind person on here could yousendit to me? I'm going to college soon and I want to watch the whole movie+ this with my friends before I go...

If you would be so kind, I would repay you with any amount of sexual favors and/or icon making.

Oh yes, and my email address is rhpal@yahoo.com, by the way.

  New member-I've been listening to "Wizard People" for the last two weeks non-stop almost. I believe it is the most brilliant thing I have ever heard!
I'm so happy I can finally share my joy. I'm sure this must have been asked before, and you probably already know what it is-will there ever be more? I saw on the front page that someone mentioned Brad Neely wouldn't. But why? Can't he see he has some crazy, cult-like following now? What could honestly be better than that?

  Okay, so after watching Brad Neely's amazing version of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone about 5 times now, I decided to take on the task of making some icons of my favorite quotes. Little did I know that I would end up making little vectors of the characters and that I had so many quotes that I liked... Hopefully you Wizard People fans out there will appreciate the outcome of my hours of labor. Enjoy!

Note: There is some inappropriate language on some of these icons because, well, some of the funniest quotes happen to contain cuss words. Please be aware of this if you find it offensive. :)

  Hi everyone! I have been listening to the first movie with this audio for years now, and never knew there was a community for it. I just finished listening to the audio, actually, and the same question came up which I will ask you. Do any of you know if anyone else has attempted an alternate audio track like this? Every time I watch it, I wish there was one for each of the movies. I believe I read somewhere that Brad Neely said he wouldn't do another one, so I wonder if anyone else tried? I would love to have a movie marathon with the audio commentary! I only wish I were a fourth as witty, so I could make one up (I came up with a small image/text based commentary for PoA, but it's not enough to record for a commentary track), but alas ... Anyway, thank you for reading, and yes to magic!

edit After some extensive research (lol), I did manage to find this, which is a GoF commentary. It's more of an informative, behind the scenes type commentary. Also, I was reading about the t-shirt idea ... I think it's a great idea ... I'll have to scour the transcripts (a big thank you for typing that all up) for some of my favorite quotes (can't put the entire transcript on a shirt) and make some of my own. I, personally, love:

But that's just me. Feel free to use the icon, just credit me. Alright, I'm done, for now. ;)
